The Historical Performance of the Federal Reserve

by Michael D. Bordovia Hoover Institution Press
Thursday, June 6, 2019

Distinguished economist Michael D. Bordo argues for the importance of monetary stability and monetary rules, offering theoretical, empirical, and historical perspectives to support his case. He shows how the pursuit of stable monetary policy guided by central banks following rule-like behavior produces low and stable inflation, stable real performance, and encourages financial stability.
